Starting 1 April 2020, the FEI has decided that, due to the cancellation of the majority of international events, the best eight results of the previous 12 months will not be taken into account for the calculation of the dressage world ranking, but rather the last two years. In the meantime, the FEI is considering returning to the ‘normal’ count. The world ranking determines starting places for combinations in certain events, such as the Olympic Games. The inclusion of the best eight results of the past two years has a major effect on the world ranking. For example, several combinations that have not been in the top fifty for a long time (e.g. Daniel Bachmann Andersen with Don Olymbrio and Charlotte Dujardin with Erlentanz TSF). The return to normal scoring will bring the necessary shifts. On 1 June 2021, the FEI returned to the normal scoring of the world ranking list for jumping.
